      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Docks

I have had both. Roll-a-Dock is almost a one person job (24 ft with L). That is what we currently have -- however, if you fish from your dock, don't get aluminum deck. It is impossible to sneak out to the end of the dock without making too much noise. On the other hand, they are no maintenance.

I have sorry memories of the old wooden beasts in 8 foot sections. This meant driving posts and setting set screws. Much too much work for a guy my age.

Good Day all- Am looking to buy a dock for our lake property. Have heard plusses and minus for the roll-in type vs. non roll-in. Any suggestions on this and anyone out there know of any place that sells used docks as well.

I agree with Clayton! In the resort business I had the pleasure of putting in and taking out docks that required assembly as well as the roll-in type. With the roll-in dock, you have gravity on your side to put it in and you can use a vehicle to pull it out. They are also MUCH easier to adjust when the lake leves rises and falls. You will happy that you spent the extra cash for a roll-in.

Glen, There is a place that sells some nice looking docks at Waterville Mn. He is located on highway 60. I know 3 people that have bought these docks so far and are very happy with them. They have wheels and you just roll them out. I'm lucky my husband built ours himself saved us hundreds of $$$.
We have a seasonal camper in that area and in the spring and fall they all get together and put the docks in and take them out in the fall. It only takes them a couple hours to put in and take out a lot of docks that way and then we have a pot luck afterwards.
